Woodenboat magazine puts out a Small Boat issue every year. It is a smorgasbord of small boat disciplines; kayak, open decked dayboats, sailing canoes, skiffs, wherry's, dory's, catboat's, mini hydroplanes ...... and etc. etc. For a boat nut, it's a must read.

Some of the boats have a personal connection.
John Summers has put together a stitch and glue 16X30 sailing canoe. I've seen the plans and they are comprehensive. The 16X30 Gilbert sailing canoe is not for everybody, but if you want a challenge of sailing a sliding seat canoe (not as athletic as the International Canoe) this is the one to build.
Build and Sail a Decked Sailing Canoe
I sailed against Ben Fuller in International Canoe's in the 1980's, and in the 2009 magazine; he has his "Rai Tan" lug sailed open camp cruiser featured. An Antonia Dias design, it looks to be very competent either under oar or sail.
